How to start freelancing is a very often asked question, and are good one, but with no final answer to. We have some tips and thought on how to freelance.

That can be backend development, UI/UX design, personal assisting, building 3D models etc. Find your skill and research if it is needed as a consultant skill. Savings and plans Make sure you have some savings when jumping out into freelancing. I personally have almost 12 months runtime with no to almost no jobs. This both gives you are security, but also gives you freedom to choice and select projects you would find fun. Make a budget and see how much you spend each month, and how long you can go on your savings without any jobs. Join a co-working space Depends on your situation and personality, but a co-working space can provide both work, friends, colleagues and a way to not get stressed about stting at home all the time. Not all co-working spaces are expensive and they almost all come with either af flex or fixed desk options. Flex is the cheap option, where you can only sit x amonut of days a week and don't have a fixed desk. Enjoy what you do Remember to enjoy what you do. This is the most important part.
